We’ve found that a spreader bar from a hammock is perfect to use as the “arms” of a homemade scarecrow.

Because it has so many holes, you can securely attach tin cans to make noise, along with aluminum pie plates and CDs to flash in the sunlight and startle the birds. Happy crow scaring!

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
